In collaboration with the Center for Leadership Learning, Cross Cultural Center, Internship and Career Center, LGBTQIA Resource Center and Women's Resources & Research Center, this three-quarter certificate program provides a cohort of undergraduate students with the opportunity to develop their skills as leaders of diverse communities.
